Joy in the In-Between

Friday, July 06, 2018

A few weeks ago, I wrote about a favorite Instagrammer of mine, Ashley Petrone of Arrows and Bow.  The theme of her blog and Instagram feed is finding the joy in the in-between.  This life mantra means a lot to me as I work to find a balance between nursing and my life outside of nursing.  I work really hard as a nurse, and on my days off it is so important that I find the time to recharge what often feels like a depleted self.  It's those in-between moments that are so important, even while at work.  I might be priming tubing with a list a mile long running through my mind of what I need to do next, but when I take a few deep breaths and appreciate the simple task of priming, allowing myself to be present in the moment, I am able to find joy in the in-between moments.  I realize when I work with this practice that I don't feel nearly as depleted at the end of my shifts, and I'm able to give more on my days off to my family and to my self.  x o, Karli
